More coverage of Google Contributor. It's open to the public without invitation now (US only).

This is the (formerly secret) product which I started as a 20% project. 
The confluence of several different events – the great shift to mobile computing where there's little screen real-estate, a spurning of display ads, to name just two – is causing content creators a...

I would say Spotify has delivered this reasonable compromise with the most success.  There are some fundamental differences between music and writing but if you could bring something like their model to writing that would be a great step forward.

very applicable to much of what we call charity and aid etc.
"Doing Good ≠ Being Good"
http://www.overcomingbias.com/2015/06/doing-good-being-good.html 
Most of us like to be associated with “idealistic” groups that claim that they are doing good, i.e., making the world better. However, this is usually not our strongest motive in choosing to associate with such groups. Instead, we more strongly want to make ourselves look good, ...

I'm OK with cloning and GMOs but draw the line at: don't mess with the germ line. Changes that are passed on to future generations can have really dramatic consequences. 
Key West, Florida could be a GM mosquito away from a deadly epidemic.

Finally got into Google Contributor today as both a user and publisher (for +Android Police and +APK Mirror), which I'm extremely excited about.

Here's a little preview of what it looks like when active.

I understand perfectly how it works (users pay $2-15 a month and essentially become bidders on AdSense, then outbid some ads with their own contributions, except instead of ads, they win essentially blank space), and while it's not exactly what I'd hoped for, there is no downside for us to have it on.

Unfortunately, it means users will definitely still see ads when their Contributor account doesn't outbid them, and they'll see ads that aren't powered by AdSense.

The cool part is you can assign to only spend your monthly contribution on certain sites, meaning you'll hopefully see even fewer ads on the sites you visit most.

Google says millions of sites are already active in the Contributor program. I'm not sure how many paying users they have though.

I'll be sharing a lot more details in the coming days. In the meantime, feast your eyes on Google Contributor in action and go put your name down on the waiting list if you want to participate in the future (https://www.google.com/contributor).

Open Source Release of TensorFlow

I'm very excited to announce the open source release of the TensorFlow machine learning library that I and many others at Google have been building.

This blog post gives an overview:
  http://googleresearch.blogspot.com/2015/11/tensorflow-googles-latest-machine_9.html

The web site has a number of tutorials and documentation about the system:
  http://tensorflow.org

The source is on GitHub:
  https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow

You might also be interested in the whitepaper we've prepared that describes TensorFlow in more detail:
  http://tensorflow.org/whitepaper2015.pdf

We'd love to hear what people think.

More "complications" on my watch face: added sunrise and sunset using nifty Lua scripting feature. With compass, weather and moon phases, I feel like I should go sailing or something.
Check it out on Google Play http://goo.gl/hbK8SZ

If you'd like an invitation to Google Contributor, please let me know!
http://www.droid-life.com/2015/04/21/this-is-google-contributor/
The waiting list will be gone soon, but in the meantime, let me know if you'd like to bypass it with an invitation.  (You must be in the US and have a @gmail.com account).
Back in November of last year, Google announced a new invite-only project called Contributor that was an “experiment in additional ways to fund the web.” The basics are this – Google Contributor gives you the opportunity to experience less ads when browsing your favorite websites by contributing ...

This is an evolutionary advantage, no need for x-rays or MRI.

Therefore, in this dilemma of mine, please point out to me that resplendent and eternal state, devoid of pain, doubt and delusion. How could the great ones manage to avoid the pain in this world? Will someone unlock to me the real mysteries?
